Heavy Metal, Sub-Genres

THRASH METAL was almost single-handedly invented by Slayer, Thrash is HM speeded up, and thus it will sound heavier than conventional HM.

SPEED METAL does exactly what it says on the tin. The music is played with the specific intention of being as fast as possible. It requires skill to stop it being just noise.

DEATH METAL covers stereotypical subjects of death, suffering, war, Satanism etc. It is accompanied by a sound that matches the topic of the music.

BLACK METAL is almost Satanic in sound and nature. Almost all Black Metal bands will claim allegiance to Satan, though this is just an act. A few of them, however, probably really do. A lot of Death Metal bands come from Sweden, like Bathory, who were the masters of this genre.

WHITE METAL groups are Christians playing HM. Their faith will be incorporated into their music, but of course will be made to sound harder than it actually is.
